Template of Choice
I used Template036 by Dave @ Spawn's Forum Set Templates

~*~*~ Let's Get Started~*~*~

Open the template
Delete the credits layer

Flood fill with gradient of choice
Delete the original background layer

Add a new layer above the “White Wavey Lines”
Select the white wavey lines and on the new layer
Flood Fill with a light color from your tube

Filter → VanDerLee → Unplugged-X → Pattern Offset
Change the blend mode to soft light

Add a new layer above the “Left RisingSun background”

Flood fill with the gradient we used before but flip it horizontally
Duplicate this layer and drag it to just above the “Right RisingSun Background”

Select the Left Rising song background so you have the ants around them
Invert the selection
On the gradient we just added above it, press delete
Deselect

Repeat this with the one on the Right as well
Delete the originals
Change the blend mode of each to color
Add an inner shadow to each
Change the blend mode to normal, use a light pink from your tube, change the size to 16, everything else at default

Change each of the outlines to a darker color of your choice, I went with a teal color from her eyes
Delete the originals if you added a new layer to do this
Add a drop shadow to this layer, I just used the standard drop shadow I usually use

For the dots, change their color to the same color you used for the “White wavey lines” before
Delete the originals if you added a new layer to do this
Change their blend modes to overlay

To the left add your close up of your tube
Just above the “White Wave Lines”
Resize and reposition as you'd like
Once you have this duplicate it
Flip the new one horizontally and move it over to the right of the canvas in the same position as the other

Change the blend modes to Luminosity, the opacity to 30%
Duplicate each of them
Erase any of the new layers that are outside the rays
Have them just above these ray layers
Change the blend mode to overlay and the opacity to 50%

Add you full body tube in the middle
Resize and reposition to your liking
Duplicate this layer
On the bottom one, add a drop shadow

On the top one
Filter → Blur → Gaussian Blur, 3.0 px
Change the blend mode to soft light lower the opacity to 50%

Add the words Sexy and Girl to your tag in white

Select the border
Add a new layer

****Most Important****

If you're happy with you're result save to your liking and you're done!

Now if you want to animate

Duplicate your wavey lines 3 times, so you have a total of four layers

On the first layer
Filer → Xenofex 2 → Constellation

Star Size – 2.00
Size Variation – 25
Edge Star Density – 10
Overall Star Density – 0
Overdrive – 100
Twinkle amount – 100
Keep Original image

Click okay

Repeat this for each of the other 3 layer but, make sure you click random seed once for each of them

Now just have each one showing for a new layer in your animation program and it should have the sparkle you want

Press Play to watch it go, if you like it save it as a .gif and you're done!

Add another new layer, I put this one above the close up layer but below the second paper layer with the pattern offset on it

I just randomly stamped the little heart out, if you want it to rotate and change colors play with the settings under your brush menu.

I have the size jitter at about 25%
The Angle Jitter at 88%
Again play with these to find what you like
